- Upload the pmpro-membership-card directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory of your site.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
- Create a page and add the [pmpro_membership_card] shortcode to it.
- (Optional) Customize your card by setting a featured image and/or creating a custom template.
How it Works
The plugin adds a new shortcode,
[pmpro_membership_card], which assigns a page as the Membership Card page. The page containing the shortcode will display the membership card and a link to print the membership card. You can also set the page’s featured image, which will be displayed on the membership card.
The shortcode has one attribute: ‘print_size’. Options include: small, medium, large or all. Default is: all. (ex:
If Paid Memberships Pro is activated, then only members will be able to view the membership card. If not, the card will show for all WP users.

Additionally, just like the other PMPro front end pages, you can create your own custom Membership Card page template as well. Simply copy the file located at:

This will load your custom template in place of the default template.
